    Default Help with overclocking q6600 X48-DS5

    Hi!

    Im wondering if anyone can help me overclock my Q6600 to 3,2-3,5ish

    first my systemspecc

    Q6600 G0
    8GB (4x2GB) Corsair DHX XMS2 TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX, 5-5-5-18
    (heard those are a bit soso on overclocking :/ )
    Gigabyte X48 DS5
    Corsair 620W
    WD Velociraptor
    Thermalright 120 Extreme

    everything is on standard:

    Try this and see how 3.2 works for you >>>

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto or fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9x]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [402]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00B or 2.00D]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5/6
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______ 5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 18

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-5
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 4-8
    Write to Precharge Delay_________5-12
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 65-85
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 3-8
    Static tRead Value_______________ 7-12
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ Auto
    Command Rate (CMD) ________ 2

    CPU/PCIEX Clock Driving Control [800mV]
    CPU Clock Skew Control [normal]
    GMCH Clock Skew Control [Normal] 50-250 may help with stability

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [Normal] << Set to your ram's spec'd voltage, normally 2.0-2.1 (+0.2-0.3V)

    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [Normal] << +0.1 for stability
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [Normal] << +0.1 for stability
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [Normal] << +0.2-0.35
    Loadline Calibration [Auto]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.35-1.4x] << 1.35-1.4x actual. All up to your chip and cooling, so set it high enough to for sure boot then you can lower later

    upon running occt is almost immideatly get CPU to hot message, in idle its at 44

    i installed the thermalright today, maybe should wait some?<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    What does CoreTemp show you for temps at Load? If over 60-70 for the above settings then I think you did not mount the heatsink fully or used to much paste. Did you use the washer/penny method to make it tighter? Just wondering, here is that method incase you wondered >>>
    eXoid.com - Tweak your Life. Mounting the Ultra-120 Extreme + P5B Ramsink Mod.

    What is the OCCT warning temp set to anyway?

    cut out a piece of metal and it does work better ty :)

    now for the overclocking

    when i run occt i get Crashed, Code 1 message

    idling its running at 32 degrees at 3.2ghz

    also the cpu seem to be going between 356x6 and 356x9, is this becouse of idling or?

    i put it like this

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9x]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [356]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.40D] *i dont know about this, should i put it as close to the original 800 or?

    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    3DMark 06 and Vantage scores will be far different

    You need to disable EIST and C1E so your CPU will stop changing multi's and voltages on you
